yesterday, my friend ashlee braved the cold and came over to my neck of the woods for what would have been a perfect playdate when i was 8 years old - crafting and blt's for dinner. of course, the blt's were made with prosciutto, arugula, and truffled mayonnaise, and the crafting was accompanied by glasses of syrah; but all in all, it was good, clean fun.
i became an aunt again about ten days ago, when sam's older sister gave birth to her second daughter - so my task was to make her a congratulations card. ashlee got workin' on a valentine's day card for her man (as did i, but that is top secret for another couple of weeks.)
while i do not recommend hand-stitching your congratulations into card stock if you value your fingertips (or your sanity,) it does give me some ideas for embroidering some clothing. . . soon to come!
in this weather all i want to do is drink spiced cider, make cards, and watch cooking shows. how do you guys deal with cabin fever?
